Insight: Realty Wrap Up / Digital Vaudeville Art / Olympics Update / Barnyard Theatre


Published August 15, 2012


Realty Wrap Up: Starter Homes - The market for high-cost homes has crashed and the market for moderately and low-priced homes (under $250,000) is rebounding. So why are prospective first-time home buyers having such a hard time finding a house? Normally, families would be moving into larger homes and freeing up these "starter homes." But many of those families are underwater or lack equity to afford a move-up. Plus, cash investors have been swooping up nearly one-third of all homes sold. To discuss the starter home market is Svenja Gudell, Senior Economist for the real estate website Zillow, and Chris Little, president-elect of the Sacramento Association of Realtors.

Digital Vaudeville Art - Dan Herrera is a photographic graphic artist with studio locations in Sacramento and New York City. This young artist wields an extensive vocabulary of photographic process that merges 19th century photography with contemporary digital imaging. His award-winning work is featured on the cover of No Alternatives: Contemporary Handcrafted Photographs, and most recently Herrera was tapped for the handcrafted invitational in the current volume of Diffusion Magazine: Unconventional Photography. In his latest collection, Vaudeville, Herrera creates beautiful images that engage us in mysterious narratives, at once futuristic and nostalgic. The series combines Herrera's childhood love of building dioramas, with his fascination of contemporary science-fiction, and 19th century photographic techniques. You can follow Dan at Facebook: Dan Herrera Studio and on Instagram: @dan_00

Olympians Haley and Alyssa Anderson - Haley swam a photo finish Women's Open Water swim in London to win an Olympic silver medal; her sister Alyssa brought home gold for the women's 4x200 freestyle relay. They grew up swimming at the Sierra Marlins at Folsom Aquatic Center where their younger sister Jordan now trains. Haley will be in our studios to share with us the story of her silver medal accomplishment. Haley's race is a 10k and she finished .4 of a second behind the Gold medalist from Hungary. Open water (marathon) swimming was added to the Olympic Games in 2008.

The Barnyard Theatre - This is a small theater company (mostly 20-somethings from Davis) who stage a show (sometimes two) each summer in an actual working barn in a rural part of Yolo County. Smell the animals. Watch the sun go down. See an interesting play (they usually do plays that are "ambitious.) The actors will read in our studios a scene from the play Psyche.
